At speech yesterday, the therapist and I talked a lot about where Elise is at and what areas she isn't progressing in. We decided to eliminate "more" and "all done" from her ipad. We've been working on her understanding those words for months now and she isn't making any improvement so for the time being we are cutting them from her program.
The behavioral therapist and I talked for an hour this morning more about the ipad. We have done so much trial and error with it, trying to figure out what will work for Elise. We are simplifying it and adding mostly those things that are highly motivating for her in hopes she will want to utilize the ipad more.
Thankfully during the 4 hours the therapist is here they use the ipad the whole time. Elise is on a visual prompt with her pointing goal. This means in the last 7 months she has learned how to point and point at a picture on the screen of what she wants.
I LOVE being a mom to my 5 kids; one with special needs. There is no greater joy than being a parent! I love each one individually but this blog will mostly focus on our daughter with special needs and our journey with her. Thanks for reading!
